A Look Back at Fort Myers
Named after Colonel Abraham Myers, who was the quartermaster general if the Confederate Army, Fort Myers military significance dates back to the early/mid 1800's and the second Seminole War. Later during the Civil War, Confederate blockade-runners and cattle ranchers were based in Fort Myers and found it very profitable dealing with both Seminole and Union soldiers.
After the Civil War, the community of Fort Myers was founded by Civil War Capital Manual Gonzalez in 1866 when he settled his family near the then abandoned Fort Myers. Gonzalez opened the area's first trading post which resulted in a larger community developing around the trading post.
Nearly 20 years after its founding, it was incorporated. Like many other small towns at the time, the growth of the area increased greatly with the arrival of the railroad in 1904 and today Fort Myers is home to a population of nearly 65,000 people.
Famous 20th century residents included both Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, both of whom had summer residences in Fort Myers. The Edison Bridge is aptly named after Thomas Edison and Henry Ford's winter estate is owned by the city with public tours available.
